Campanulata Cloche and Fingerless Gloves
Spathodia campanulata, also known as African Tulip Tree, Fireball, and Flame of the Forest, is prevalent in warm climates from India to South America. Water collects in the abundant clusters of vivid orange blossoms, making the tree a favorite destination for hummingbirds, parakeets and other tropical birds. On a chilly day, the lightweight Campanulata cloche and fingerless gloves, with their deeply embossed leaf and petal motifs, will bring you warmth, glamour, and a touch of the tropics .
